Sail Date: Aug 2019

This was our first cruise and we decided on the Cosmopolitan Classics cruise around the Med.

Flight and transition from airport to ship was very smooth and embarkation was fast for 12 noon time of day. Our cabin was also ready when we went to put our hand luggage in it.

Ship: Very clean, tidy, easy to navigate around and always seemed like there wasn't a lot of people on ship despite it being full.

Cabin Review

Cabin Junior Suite

Our Junior suite was towards the port side aft of the ship. We found it very spacious and there were no issues or noise. The bed was fine and we enjoyed the chocolates and small gifts from our cabin steward. We were surprised that our room was ready early around 1pm upon embarkation and suitcases arrived a couple of hours after.

I turned the air con right down, as I don't like it, and we slept with the balcony door slighty open each night.

The balcony was spacious and we had two sunbeds on it.

We had a coffee machine and dressing gowns and clarins small complementary products. The room was kept clean by the cabin steward and there was loads of space for clothes. We didn't use all the cupboard space.

Port Reviews

Palma de Mallorca (Majorca)

This was embarkation day so didn't do an excursion

Florence (Livorno)

Had time to look around Pisa and have a coffee.


Had a great french guide and really enjoyed the scenery and people watching.


Lovely picturesque port. Stayed on ship for a chill out day as can't do all trips.
